Inside a Japanese Junior High School

Although it is kind of a long video, it is one of the few videos out there that shows how the ALT interacts with the staff at the school and shows the under-belly (a bit at least) of how things really go in a school setting. Typical morning staff meetings are shown. Planning lessons and executing them in the actual classroom setting.

Seiso jikan - or cleaning up the classroom after lunch on your hands and knees wiping the floor. As well as how gym class goes. All mixed up with a bit of humor of having a drink after the day is done and a showing of your typical social life one might have in such a job.
